While I wouldn't call charcoal severe (I save that for black), I will agree that Navy is much more versatile and should probably be the choice for a first overcoat. I'd probably follow up with a camel color before I go to charcoal or black. After that, anything's fair game.

Aren't you living in Melbourne? I had Adriano make me a navy one last year. Thought about the style you want?

I'm close to Sydney, but I travel to colder climes fairly regularly and will be moving to a colder area at some point, so thought I'd get my first overcoat this year. Haven't thought about style preference yet. As this will be my first, I wasn't thinking of anything fancy.

I second that. Now that is how an overcoat should look like.

Please help the totally clueless among us and by "us", I mean "me". I think the look below is fabulous but I thought that an overcoat was not subject to the "leave the last button undone" rule. I am not opposed to it but I currently button them all, for full protection against the elements. Am I wrong?

With an overcoat it is not compulsory, you can leave it undone or you can do it up.

First fitting today, this really is an embryo of what it will be!

Many thanks for posting Rob - really keen to see how this one will turn out!

Curious: how close did you want this coat to resemble the Taub coat?

Close, but not identical. I'll have a few details that Taub's won't, like a sleeve band and the buttons on the pockets. Not sure if the back will be exactly the same either, don't remember how Taub's had it.

This is looking really great so far, NYR... can't wait to see the end product.

Thanks Rob - that's exactly where I was going. I was thinking about this detail:

Any specific reason why yours will (not) have that detail? Clearly, no critique; am contemplating this as a future coat, but am not sure about that upper back detail. Why is it there like that instead of a one piece back?
